Leon David Wittern-Kochs was born in 1997. After an exchange year at a high school in Oregon, USA, he completed his A-levels with a focus in biology in 2016. In the following year, he gained many new experiences in the catering industry during a 9-month stay in Australia. Further international experience in the USA and Hong Kong helped strengthen his communication skills and international competences. In the spring of 2017, Leon completed a 6-week training as a system catering manager in the USA before finding his way to the Dialoghaus in Hamburg.

The great communication and the openness of the employees inspire him. “The wide variety of dialogue formats that help make society more tolerant and helpful amazes me,” states Leon, who is now enthusiastically working as an apprentice to the event manager at Dialoghaus Hamburg.
